Seven is reviving The Farmer Wants a Wife, last seen on Nine in 2016, in what appears to be a Trans-Tasman series.
“Australia’s most successful love show is back! The Farmer Wants a Wife is searching for single farmers who are ready to find their soulmate. This is not only Australia’s original love show, it’s also the best – by a country mile. Start your love story today,” a casting notice announces.
“Most successful” presumably refers to its strike rate of partners, marriages and even babies which have resulted from TV romance.
Applicants must be an Australian or New Zealand citizen or permanent resident aged 21 or over.
Filming by FremantleMedia is due to take place between mid-January and early-March.
Single men and women can apply here (notably it asks for “Farmers” and “Ladies” which is not terribly mod).
Seven’s 2020 Upronts are due on October 23.
